Fatima's New House

Fatima's dad, Benito, has made a great deal of progress on his family's home. Taking over from where Canterbury School left off, he has nearly finished all the walls. His family now has about 4 times more space than before (old house pictured below). He just has to lay a couple layers of adobe bricks and seal the walls. We are happy to see he has put such hard work into improving the living conditions of his children.

In other house-building news, we have begun construction on Transfiguracion's (Gabriel's mom) room that will be attached to Tona's house. 12 volunteers and a contractor worked all day Saturday to lay the foundation. Tomorrow, the first 4 layers of adobe bricks will go up. We hope to be finished within a week or so! Pictures to come.
